The New Boredom

Mah and Newer. Manure.

Oh, You’re Still Here?

with 3 comments

I’ve been busy trying to plan the rest of my life lately so I’m sorry I just left you here with the lights off.

But since we last spoke, I’m moving within a year. I don’t know care where, I’m just over it here and ready for something new. Now all I have to do is save up so that I don’t move myself physically into a new city and financially into stupid debt. Also I’ve spent about 73 hours this week so far looking at guitar wiring diagrams trying to figure out how to finish my first custom guitar without killing myself upon plugging it in. Wait, wasn’t it like three weeks ago I was talking about how I just got my first guitar? My good friend Dave Camp said, “If you’re going to do something, do it hard,” and that has always seemed like good advice to me.

I took a break from stabbing myself in the eyes with a hot soldering iron today and found this great collection of poloroids taken by Andrei Tarkovsky. If you don’t know who that is that’s okay. You’re just missing out on some of the best cinema ever made. Get on it. Solaris with Clooney and Soderberg is good but Solaris with Tarkovsky is like making out with Jesus himself behind the bleachers and getting caught by his mom (this means good by the way). Watching a Tarkovsky film is like watching a slide-show anyways, so just take a look at these few to get an idea of what his films are like.

Also, I think it’s worth noting that Joe Simon just posted a video shot with his iPhone4 today of him riding a bank in Austin. I don’t want to see the ensuing onslaught of garbage iphone edits that will surely be coming out in the next year but… in the hands of Joe Simon (or rather the grass near by Joe Simon), the footage actually looks not bad. By which I mean bad just like all the other HD footage out there because it’s not film, but good overall. Another case of: it’s about the talent surrounding the camera, not the gadget itself.

I’d like to laser etch this into my laptop but a vinyl decal will do… maybe for my birthday I’ll finally be “cool” with one of these.

I’ll probably get around to telling the story of how I accrued about $48,000 of bills in three days some time this week weekend.

Until then, think about this: “Existentialism isn’t so atheistic that it wears itself out showing that God doesn’t exist. Rather, it declares that even if God did exist, that would change nothing.”

Also, you can’t quote Sartre without also quoting the following: Camus can do but Sartre is smartre.


Ridiculous bike… would have pissed my pants if I had that as a kid though.
